A Whirlwind Weekend

Whew weeeee. What a weekend. It all started when I went to the beauty parlor on Friday.


Here I am resting after Saturday morning’s fundraiser garden tour. What a handsome profile, yes? Thank you Godmother Carol. I feel like my old self again.

See, I had to get beautified for the bicyclists who were touring five gardens to benefit VCU Massey Cancer Center that morning. Can you believe my garden was one of only five invited to participate? Well, I guess so with my magnificent snoopervising. Without me to help, the peeps couldn’t keep a garden all nice and neat. They try. Bless Them.

Anyroo, over about two hours there were maybe 120 people who came to see me and my garden. I held court, of course. And I gave little tours. I showed them my favorite places. Including my pass-through under the fence to Sniglet’s house.

OH….. Did I tell you? Sniglet is coming to stay with me while her peep is away. She’ll be with me for DAYS and I can’t wait. WEEEEEEEEE! Woooooot! That’s another reason I had to get beauty-fied.


It was so hot on Saturday, I had to take a break from the garden tour and sip some water out of one of my little ponds. The peeps hate it when I do that. They say the water is nasty. But – it’s the funniest thing – whenever I remind Them that I like to wash down the kitty bon bons that I like to eat, They stop worrying about the nasty water. Wonder why?

OK. Back to work. Gotta get the house ready for Sniglet. She’s coming on Friday. It’ll be another whirlwind weekend for sure.

What You Learned Today:

  • I have a nice garden. Sometimes I let people come see it.
  • Saturday, lots of people came to see it.
  • But mostly, I think they came to see moi.
  • My gal pal Sniglet is coming to visit for a while.
  • We’ll have big fun.
  • I’ll tell you all about it.
  • OH….on Saturday, I think I was in Manhattan, like many of you guessed. But I’m really not sure. Thanks for playing along!

    We’re sure the Peep’s garden is just lovely, Stuart, but we think you’re the reason there was such a large crowd! You’re the main attraction! With your good looks, charm and scottitude, yup, it’s because of you!

    How kind of you to open up for that great cause! Hooray for Stuart and his peeps! 😀

  18. PigLove says:

    That was so cool – all those humans coming to see you. Isn’t that awesome. Of course, you have to put on a show because they are only there to see YOU. I feel the same way when peeps come here to the Hotel Thompson. You look gorgeous pal! XOXO – Bacon

  19. So excited you pal is coming for an extended visit! Y’all have fun, hear?

  20. ScottieMom says:
